It’s nicer than Betty Monroe had

The Rocky Horror Picture Show was released 40 years ago today. I didn’t see the show until about 5 years later at a midnight showing at the local XXX theatre. Suddenly I found myself in a room full of people like me. The first time in my life that acceptance, love, fun and laughter was shared by all…unconditionally.

Needless to say, I was hooked. Each week I would return for many showings to come. By the time I graduated high school I probably had at least 100 showings under my belt. I admit that the film had an impact on me, one that helped shape who I have become.

  1. The next year and for several years after I would drive across the bridge to an XXX Theater in Newport News weekly to watch it ….. SMH where does time go!

  2. I was late to Rocky Horror. It was well past college before I discovered it. And I have yet to see a live showing of it. I’m always in the wrong place at the wrong time. But it’s one of 5 movies I can pop in the DVD player and make myself feel better as soon as it starts.
